Our History

Our products and services have evolved in concert with the needs of our clients and the markets they serve.

Silverchair is founded as a packager for medical textbooks, operating out of Founder & CEO Thane Kerner’s apartment in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Our first digital offering: Neurology in Clinical Practice (produced by Butterworth Heinemann). The benefits of this new format included the addition of hyperlinks and an updating program for authors.

Developed semantic tools & processes to streamline the indexing process for complex scientific and medical information.

Launched The Silverchair Platform, bringing together semantic technology with native support for the full array of content types, formats, business models, and customer categories.

The Silverchair Platform continues to be iteratively developed and market-tested, integrating and delivering scholarly and professional content from a single platform – journals, books, video, custom formats, and more.

Headquartered in Charlottesville, VA, Silverchair is changing the way scientists, doctors, and researchers discover and use expert information by delivering distinctive online sites and products from our clients’ unique content.
